A good selection of traditional food, well presented and reasonably priced. Restaurant is modern, clean and inviting. Staff are particularly helpful.

Visited with my son, we had a salad with fish and chips, all very good and so was the service. Stopped off for coffee too. It was not busy so the place did not feel full which helped.

A snack bar in the dockyard that does great sandwiches and hot snacks. Their doorstop sandwiches especially are excellent with a sensible amount of filling.

I have criticised on dealing with queues before. This time however there was no queue and great service. Good selection of snack type food including some unusual pies. Lamb cobbler. As always there doorstep sausage sandwiches were excellent.

Does a good selection of sandwiches and hot snacks. Staff are very nice and friendly but have trouble dealing with queues. Still good lunch food especially the sausage and mustard doorsteps.
